Who is Patricia Polacco?
  • She was born in Lansing, Michigan in 1944. She
    lived on a farm with her mom and Grandparents
    until 1949. Her grandparents were some of the
    most inspirational people in her life. Those
    relationships greatly influenced her life and
    work.
  • In 1949 they moved to Coral Gables, Florida, and
    then to Oakland, California. What she loved most
    about this neighborhood was that all her
    neighbors came in as many colors, ideas and
    religions as there are people on the planet. She
    thought she was lucky to know so many people that
    were so different and yet so much alike.
  • Ms. Polacco had a very hard time learning to
    read. She couldnt read until she was 14 years
    old. She did not write children's books until she
    was 41 years old.
